Travel with kids

Thursday, December 19, 2002
Sorrel discusses which travel best suits families, and which budget!

School holidays are just around the corner and, not surprisingly, our website has been inundated with requests for tips for travelling with children.

Now, assuming you are not going too far afield this time around, given the sorry state of the Australian dollar, you would be well-advised syphoning some of the money you will have saved on long-haul air flights and putting it into your accommodation budget.

Go for something self-contained with a kitchenette and a laundry and try to pick something that has a swimming pool or a garden; somewhere the kids can run amok at the end of the day and burn off all that extra energy.

If you are going on a long road journey, it is a really good idea to pack up a special surprise showbag for each of your children. Don't give it to them at the beginning of the trip, but save it for about halfway through, when they are starting to get a little bit testy!

Of course, you should have a medical kit on board, but please make sure it contains paediatric strength medications, extra adhesive strips, Stingose and of course, plenty of sunscreen.

We hope you have a fantastic holiday
